Who's sharing my host
Any easy way to find out?

 7:25 pm on Jan 6, 2004 (gmt 0)

I know the IP of my shared host, and I'm wondering who my neighbours might be so that I can see what risks I'm taking being on a shared host. Any easy way to find out my neighbours from the IP?

+ IP-address Filters - Only find results from the following IP-address(es)

dmorison - how do you accomplish what's being asked about at Netcraft? If they have a domain by host feature or survey, I can't locate it.

Darn - doesn't look like you can now. Looking at the site I may have mistaken it for the "other sites running your OS" rather that other sites on your IP - I'd never really looked at it that closely. Sorry...

Use WhoIs dot SC to do a Reverse-IP search
GigaBlast also lets you search by IP

Sometimes, if you go up a level in your FTP you can view the other domains in the server's folders.

Not exactly the easy way, but give it a try:

If you have linux based host and have access to SSH, most companies don't dissalow you to go thru folders.

What you can do is SSH into your host, then find httpd.conf file and copy it to your own directory, then FTP to your directory and download it, there you can see who is hosting with you.

Sample commands:
cd /usr/local/apache/conf
cp httpd.conf ~

Thanks for the replies gang. I wound up using the alltheweb suggestion. Thanks a lot for that one.

Seem to be lots of people sharing and those are only the pages that have been indexed. It was quite eye opening. Doesn't seem like I'm in a bad neighbourhood though so that's nice.

Again, thanks to all.

there use to be a great site named www.ipdetective.com, you would enter an IP and see all domains that resolve to this IP. Too bad it is long gone :(
